Abstract

Professional development of second language teachers is extremely important for effective second language (L2) acquisition. This book fills the gap in our understanding of the complexities involved in the professional development of second language teachers in diverse socio- cultural, institutional and historical contexts in which second language teacher education takes place. It represents research from both native and non-native English speaking L2 teachers including those in pre-service, in-service, ESL, EFL, K-12 and higher education. It consists of fourteen empirical research studies that embrace a sociocultural theoretical perspective on diverse Second Language Teacher Education (SLTE) programs around the world including North America, South America, Asia and Europe.
